The true power of an RPG is revealed with Final Fantasy X. I can't imagine the ''Next-Gen'' era without this Icon Game.

Asides from being one of the first games that truly exhausts the graphical potential of the Playstation 2, a completely enjoyable turn-based combat mode, a worthy of Hollywood voice acting (the very first in a FF game), an epic story like you never seen before and a score as good as Metallica mixed with Johann Sebastian Bach, Final Fantasy X has something that a game rarely have... Feelings.
In this occation, the storyline is the main attraction but It isn't just a script to keep our attention, it is portal, to transport us inside the game and experience the Spira's World like you were there.
Once again, like in FF VIII, Tetsuya Nomura bring us one of the best character designs of his entire career, a visual concept that, maybe less futuristic in certain aspects, but more spiritual and suitable than ever.
The roots and life experiences each character have with it's own world / environment, are one of the keys to understand what's going on in their heads throughout the story.
Nobuo Uematsu did a remarkable job with the musical score. Extremely original but still very characteristic of the FF series. Always diverse and consistent, keeps your emotions synchronized with the action.
Finally, i'm not going to review the same things that Gamespot does about the game, but believe me if i tell you that I can't enumerate all the amazing moments you gonna live playing Final Fantasy X.
RPG games are not always the most awaited by the general gaming public, but in this case, this is a game that changes the curse of the genre forever.
My last advice: If you don't have FF X, your PS2 is worthless.
And if you don't have a PS2, buy one... just for this game.
